Kids these days! No, really

My kids had a cousin over and spent the morning playing an elaborate game with stuffed animals. I just found this open document on the computer (made by Mabel, I’m sure):

  1. Um. My brother, 2 sisters, and I had a stuffed animal city. Bethani was old enough to play for real, so she was probably 6, meaning I was 13. We had a mayor and a staffed hospital and a bank. We had money we printed on my dad’s old line printer. We built cars out of shoeboxes and made hats. Our parents let us keep the set-up for several days.

    I can’t recall, though, ever sending out memos. . .

      That’s exactly how my kids play–wifth different homes and stores and businesses. Sunday Mabel cataloged all her animals by type and name. And they do like to keep their set-up as long as we’ll let them.

        I am further informed that in this particular game they had a corporation called “Shnoufle Industries, Inc.,” and “it was owned by a large dog, Mr. Shnoufles, who had a monopoly on everything, and everyone works for Shnoufle Industries. So in the first one it’s just a bunch of love stories, and in the second one it’s love stories and spy stories.”

    (Have her put this in her college application and she’s sorted) 😉

    How funny that it occurred to her to make something on the computer. She must have a good example of that. Haha.

    I especially like the use of “A” and “B” to help make her point. What cute kids.

    I, Grandpa Tracy, was just showing this to Molly, who says that Mr. Shnouffle Industries was her idea, and that she is both Oregeno Squirrel and Mr. Shnouffle.

  6. hahahaha! I know that’s all I say when I come here, but seriously, your kids are funny every time.
